With three albums under his belt, and stints with Paul Jones and The Blues Band, and more recently with Tony Joe White, blues guitarist Jack Blackman’s quickly establishing himself as strong musician, songwriter and performer and we are very pleased to have secured his services with his band for Saturday 27th April.
A rapidly rising star of the blues guitar, singer-songwriter Jack Blackman and his band provide original contemporary blues numbers flavoured with folk and country (elements of Dylan and Tom Petty in the mix too) for a highly original fusion of styles underpinned by his accomplished guitar playing and his smooth vocals – which one reviewer described as “reminiscent of Squeeze’s Glenn Tilbrook” – and songwriting hooks.
With the current trajectory of his career, this could be one of the last chances to see Jack play in a more intimate setting (form more details, see www.jackblackman.com).
